Just heard about this on the news - awaiting more details, but here is a rundown: A masked gunman hops the fence at Hillsboro Airport, approaches a running helicopter with a flight instructor and his girlfriend inside - orders them out and fires a round into the ground when they don't move fast enough. They run for cover and notify employees at the school of what is happening. Now, here it gets interesting. 2 employees of the flight school are CHL holders - they run out and confront the man and hold him at gunpoint, waiting for police to arrive. It takes 16 MINUTES for Hillsboro police to arrive on scene. Once they get there, the bad guy takes off, hopping the fence again, where he is confronted by an officer, who shoots and kills the man. Should be an interesting topic of discussion as more details emerge. I'm curious how it will be taken that two employees ran toward the bad guy, something typically the police would do. If one of them had shot the suspect, would they have had protection under the law since they left a place where they weren't in immediate danger and ran to the threat. Since they're not LE's, I do wonder how the law would look at that. Seriously though - 16 MINUTES for police to arrive at an airport with a masked gunman/active shooter situation??? WTH??! Thoughts?
